Walking through my mind wearing soft shoes

audience for life because it is beautiful, occasionally, the irony of an introverted extrovert, we were chosen to exist at the same time as the other, give or take some years, like there is great meaning to that, who knew!

"It's too easy to dream among the miles of a highway"

These words are better the drunker the writer, the fuller the moon (which is full I might add), but tonight the only intoxication is nostalgia.

Score is 1

I must NOT find a way back, for it hurts too much to be in this

Across from you sits a girl

Do you look away? Or do you continue watching as your heart wells up for her. Her body is positioned stiffly, she seems too painfully self aware. You think you caught her eyes moist. Do you begin to fantasize what you would do for her if she let you? Do you want her eyes to look at you so ever intently yet quizzically as you enter and exit her body? If you could keep her forever would that warm you and lesson the way your mind paces and the ever present boredom of your heart? And would you grow to love her even more every day as she sits at your table and lays in your bed? You may recognize she runs deeper than you even thought. Her face becomes so familiar and necessary, that you  can't even imagine what it would be like if it were gone. Then you begin to realize she needs you more than you thought, and perhaps that begins to frighten you. You begin to touch her less, it begins to not sit right with you. You begin to think about dating again, real dating, grown women, who although don't move your heart as much, take less out of you. Soon you think, you might be able to write this whole situation off as a comical mistake. You now go out more often. You bring women back with you, hoping they would leave as soon as they arrived...well as soon as the deed is done. You still  talk to her, you realize you never heard how high her pitch was, how she was always trying to sound light and burdenless

A vulgarity I can't romanticize

When you've lost your last friend

you may walk like you're drunk, but really your legs just don't care. Body sways to the left and then the right, "vrrrrrvrrrrrvrrrr" the sound of your thigh against the metal wire fence. A green playground bench I sat on, shivering, before taking the long walk home. I think about losing my last friend again. Wait. For a tiny moment I feel a little light. Like the times I visited the tiny beach by myself on a tiny part of Long Island when I was in high school. I was shackled for so long before then and this feeling was so tasty. I can be alone, by myself. By the water no less. Reading a book that temporarily heightens these delightful feelings even even more. I feel connected to the universe. Oooh, no! Don't step in that. I'm back on the sidewalk, swaying like a drunk, almost stepped in dog shit. This whole neighborhood is full of it. I saw the Sanitation Department man give a ticket to the owners of the pitbulls on my block two weeks ago. My block has been in the clear ever since. But it will change back. I take the opposite walking  route to the train now to avoid the dog shit on the other blocks. But its everywere, lurking, pretending to be symbolic.

Your mind was dormant

and then, daily, for about a month full of days, it started c l e a r i n g. your eyes. lucidity evolved inside slowly but steadily, and so did yourself. all the vulgarity throughout. but the sky is blue now. it was always blue, but now it's really blue. oh, and the pomegranate too! so robust but with tepid flavor! you can taste it better now. you can taste it so much better now! you can also feel it better. the rage, i mean.

Interview with Fixe Magazine

The Valuable Valya
by Cary

How did you become interested in fetish/BDSM?

I don't know how, but I know when. I was about five years old when I start fantasizing what I now realize were BDSM/kink fantasies. When speaking with people about their fetishes and kinks, it seems like a lot of folks experienced their fetishistic thoughts at a very young age. Perhaps it is something that is innate for some people.

Do you enjoy fetishism/BDSM play in your personal life, and if so what are you into?

Yes I do! And it's a secret ;)
In my modeling life, my job is to reflect the fetish that the photographer/producer/personal client wants, so I try and keep the two separate.

Are there any fetishes that you don't find appealing?

Anything that is potentially physically or emotionally harmful to oneself or another. Everything else, if I am not turned on by it, I am always at least interested in learning more about it. I love learning about kinks I have never heard about before, it is amazing how much of seemingly "innocent" behaviors and objects are erotic for people. Did you know sneezing could be a fetish? I love it!

What excites you about fetish modeling?

To me it's fascinating exploring the different faces of fetishism. A true fetish is something that one must need in order to feel sexually gratified, and the thought that I'm providing that through a modeling or acting gig is very exciting.

What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?

I love beautiful European lingerie that mixes elements of BDSM wear into it, like Kiki de Montparnasse and Agent Provocateur. I also love classic black heels and garter stockings. Want my amazon wish list URL?? lol

What are your least favorites?

I can't seem to pull off PVC and Latex!

Do you think pinup and fetish are becoming part of the mainstream culture?

As with everything else, what is fashionable comes and goes, but the real spirit of it remains and will remain with the people that breathe it's authentic air long after the fashion is gone.

What kind of music do you like?

Honestly, I like it all if it is quality, from classical to rap. My personal hero however is Bjork.

What do you like to do for fun?

When I am not modeling, I pass my time writing and doing my own photography. To unwind, I like to to open up a bottle of red and cook dinner for friends. Food, mmm, now that's erotic!
